Art Begets Art

January 7, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

(Article originally appeared on Hypable.) I got my first tattoo when I was 20 years old. It was somewhat meaningless, as many pieces of body art can be when gotten on impulse. I hadn’t been drinking or anything, though my judgement was no less clouded…

Winterfall

December 24, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

A drift, a breath Another death Of season, and of time Gather around Family bound Beat snow-devils from your coat Summon your kin To hearth and stone To home and bone These ties that forever bind Winter has fallen A chill so near Pressing frosted claws…

Some Early Cheer

December 17, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Or late, depending on whether or not you were looking forward to this quarter’s newsletter. We’re still in the fourth quarter, though, so it wasn’t late as much as…strategically delayed and deployed. Or something. Anyhoo, Geadhain’s Quarterly was jus…

True Beauty Is Eternal

December 10, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Last week I found that rare gem floating in the Facebook effluvium: a beautiful and short bio that we’ll get to shortly. I don’t have all that much to say that the video doesn’t express. I urge you to watch it, and to consider what it means in your own…

The Family Stone

November 19, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

We had our first—light—snow here in Toronto last week, and I was reminded: yes, winter has come, and Christmas is just around the corner. That evening, as I was leaving the tattoo parlour and knowing that I wasn’t going to see George (my artist) or any…

I’ve had so many comments and messages regarding Jupiter and his welfare that I thought I should give everyone an update: he’s doing fine. Better than fine! Jupiter’s lungs have completely cleared up and he’s growing like a weed and still sweet as can…

Mother’s Pride

June 25, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Pythius: two-spirited shaman of the Doomchasers, and the perfect icon for today’s Pride Post! *** Mother’s Pride Nature shines, She beams She adores Herself in light Yet She knows the craven kiss of darkest night Embracing with truth Her right, Her glo…

Highs and Lows

June 11, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Bringing Jupiter home was definitely a high point of last week. Still, our happiness at his arrival was overshadowed–made a footnote–by the horrible events that happened in London. With that pain fading, but not forgotten, we believed Jupiter would b…

A Bundle of Joy (and Sorrow)

June 4, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

This is unscheduled and off the cuff, and not what I’d planned to discuss (see the original blog below). I woke up this morning and read the news; then caught up on the “I’m safe” tags from my cousin and other friends and family in the UK. While the pa…
